One day she meets her old enemy, Monsieur, brother of the king, accompanied by his noblemen. A tragedy occurse, "Le masque rouge" burns to the ground and Angélique swears revenge. She asks her friend Claude le Petit aka "Le poète crotté". to write pamphlets in which they accuse the noblemen surrounding Monsieur. The king disapproves of what his brother did but he doesn't like what Angélique is doing. He sends his best policeman to her, the former lawyer of Jeoffrey, Desgrez. He promises her a license to make and sell chocolate and 50.000 livres as compensation for the loss of "Le masque rouge", on the condition that she stops publishing the pamphlets and Monsieur's name isn't mentioned. Angélique agrees. In her new establishment she then encounters her cousin Philippe de Plessis-Bellières. She blackmails him to marry her and he introduces her to the court.
